“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Quite a decent place. The choices we had were pretty bland but nicely presented but not a place to go for a special occasion nor to take out of towners to.

“Best restaurant in the area by far”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

We were visiting Vancouver Island and friend of mine had a flight out of Qualicum Beach air port and told us about this modest yet classy restaurant connected to the air port. Its only a 2 minute drive from our hotel which was down town so we decided to check it out. The food was by far the best we have had on our trip. The staff was extremely freindly and the service was very good. The food was out in less then 15 minutes and all of the tables were full. Apparently they have new owners, well if you ask me they are taking this restaurant in the right direction!

“Murder Mystery a Hit”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

We went to the Murder Mystery at the Final Approach Restaurant the other night and had an absolutely fantastic time!! The food was great, the wine flowed and the mystery was so much fun!! Do hope they do more of these - so interactive and enjoyable. Love the food there and eat there quite often. Recommend it highly!!

“Black Friday”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Lack of consistency will be the downfall of this restaurant. Have been to it under the old management and now the new and we decided to take friends there on August 13, 2013.
Should have listened to my little voice about Black Friday's.
We made meals out of the appetizers as they are a reasonable size and usually good but the mussels we so salty as to be inedible, the dry ribs so dry I am sure that they had been sitting around all day and the Caesar salads were limp and the dressing mundane.
I have been to the restaurant frequently and often enjoy the meals but do find that they are all over the map with service and food being consistently reliable and will therefore not be back with friends and new client until we can be sure about the offerings. I fear this will be another Qualicum Beach failure. Please improve and prove me wrong!!

“A very reasonable place to eat”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This restaurant has recently come under new management. We visited in August on a warm day and had dinner on the patio. There were a couple of small planes that came in to land while we were on the patio and, although they made a bit of noise, it was for a very short time only and made for interesting conversation during the meal. The food was good, well prepared, did not take long to reach our table, and the service was exemplary. The previous management were renowned for their food and service but health issues caused them to sell the restaurant so we didn't really have anything to compare the food and service to other than other local restaurants. It is a good choice for either lunch or dinner. Seating is fairly limited so reservations for dinner would be a good idea.
